I finished writing my profile for Mormon.org in December, but it took forever for it to get reviewed, I guess. After a couple of weeks, I emailed the Church and asked about it, and a couple of weeks later, they replied that the review process was lengthy, and they were backlogged. At any rate, they must have gotten around to it, because it’s online now. To see it, click the “I’m a Mormon” button in the middle of the right sidebar. I’ll be adding to it in the future, but I really like what’s there so far. Hopefully it does some good for someone.
Like a lot of other people, I’m in the midst of creating a profile for the new mormon.org campaign. The idea is that most people out there don’t know any Mormons well, and that factor is the single biggest determinant in whether or not someone’s receptive to hearing our message. Therefore, the Church is sponsoring a mostly one-way social networking site where Latter-day Saints can post profiles and our future friends out there in cyberspace can start getting to know some of us.
This is a great idea, and it gives me what I hope is also a great idea.
We should have a similar site to reach out to inactive Church members.
